why do you think you have these things? if you do not mind me asking.

i hate having HA. it actually took me a while to admit out loud that i have it, health anxiety. this sounds like HA to me. are you able to go and see a doctor about these concerns? keep us posted!

I have posted a picture but it says awaiting for approval
I don't know friend one day I realized my nails look too pale so
I did the mistake of googling ( i haven't done it again since then)
I got to say I'm pretty scared because u get these nails on liver cirhossis, diabetes and more...
My family says that my nails are fine and I shouldn't worry  but I think they do it so they calm me down.it might be just HA But I think getting some blood test will really relieve me from this weight , damn you google :(

It sounds a lot like health anxiety especially since it sounds like you weren't having any problems with your nails until you thought they looked pale and looked it up. If you hadn't of looked up the symptoms for example, you would of most likely forgot about it and not given it a second thought. I used to look up symptoms all the time before but I've found it more trouble than its worth, even something simple such as a headache can range anywhere from you didn't get enough sleep to a brain tumor, and if you have health anxiety you are most likely going to jump to the worst case scenario and worry yourself over nothing.

Welcome to anxietyzone. It sounds like nothing serious, just health anxiety related.
